SMART Spelling with Michelle!

Yearly subscription to 227 video lessons

for schools

Perfect for differentiation!

Classroom teachers can work with a small group of students while the class works with Michelle via video - from any device!

Spelling lessons from Foundation (Prep) right through to Year 6. 

 

A lesson on every spelling pattern from the manual! 

 

The 227 ten minute video lessons include 35 lessons for Foundation (Prep) level and 32 lessons for each Year 1 - 6 level. Each student will have access to every lesson from one login.  The teacher can instruct each student as to which lessons to watch, depending on their individual need.  This allows for differentiation as students can work at any year level that their teacher has directed.

These lessons are not organised by year level but by lesson number.  The lesson number matches the page number of that spelling pattern in the manual.

FAQs

 

What does 'whole school' mean?

If you're a primary school then it means Foundation to Year 6, your current enrolment numbers.  If you are in a F-12 school, then it means your junior school.  If you're in a situation where just some of your school uses SMART Spelling, please email us to explore other pricing options.

 

How long do we have access to the video lessons?

Until the end of 2021.

 

How do we get the weekly spelling sheets for each lesson?

They are a PDF download and are located under each video.

  

Do I order for 2020 numbers or projected numbers for next year?

Just use 2020 numbers.

 

As SMART Spelling is used all over Australia, which font have you used?

Comic Sans but students can write their spelling words in whichever font they are used to.

 

Do we need to be using SMART Spelling at our school?

Yes.  These lessons are for schools that have trained their teachers in this approach.

 

How do we access the lessons?

The videos are hosted on our website (the videos are not downloadable).  You simply login once to access all of them. 

 

Can we host the videos on our own platform?

No, they are only hosted on our website. This way we can ensure the correct weekly spelling sheets (and rules when needed) are there to download easily.
